Consignment shipping

It's family - that's the only reason I am consigning with them. I know I know, business and family like oil and water. They are about 2 hours away. They have a computer program I can check to monitor my sales. For me this is a trial. The demographic is completely different than where I live. This is a very upscale clothing store in downtown Seattle and in Bellevue (burb of Seattle). I live in a farming community. They may go into an exclusive line if my stuff sells in thier store - which then of course would be straight up wholesale. Even if they don't want me to do an exclusive I'm think of saying 2 - 3 months consignment then after that if they want my product it will be wholesale. That is plenty of time to see if it flies there.

So I foot the bill to ship - right?

The very worst kind of consignment is with relatives. It almost split up my husband and his brother. They live 2 1/2 hrs away. They didn't rotate their stock and we took back about 200 tins that were totally messed up. Some were 3 years old. Bad kind of business. Carole
